Any time within the specs should work.

I have a 2004 Yamaha V*1100 custom it has the stock mag wheel having trouble finding a tire that Will seal the bead on the wheel tried the general RT 43 the shop I took it to put 150 psi did not seal the bead so I took that tire back And got a hankook 426 This time he got one side to seal And he held the pressure in for a while and had a heater on it to make it easier and end up blowing the whole side wall about a 6 inch rip in it the guy has mounted plenty of car tires on motorcycle wheels So I didnít know if it was my wheel or just had to have a certain tire?
Any help is appreciated

I hope you were not standing anywhere near that guy when he did that. That dude is dangerous and would NEVER EVER touch one of my tires again.

No I wasnít near it but it was very loud went back to make sure everyone was OK and it wasnít the fact that he didnít know what he was doing because that shop has done many Car tires on motorcycle wheels they have just never ran into this

And Iím really hoping itís not the wheel that is the problem the way itís designed hopeful someone on here has had one done to that specific bike and wheel maybe itís just a certain tire with a different style of bead on the tire that works for this rim

what store takes back a car tire after you jacked it up to 150PSI trying to put it on a motorcycle rim?!

did they give you a refund for the other tire that you destroyed trying and failing to do the same thing?

To me, it seems like darksiders want to cheap out and want a tire they don't want to replace for 40,000 miles.
Myself, i buy a good quality motorcycle tire. If it wears out, it gives me the opportunity to check brakes, bearings, driveshaft, swingarm and a complete inspection.
